    Post Starting up the flower room


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello everyone,
    It is starting to cool down now so after intense cleaning and some re configuring of a few things I fired up the room yesterday So my ac unit failed me last July and had to shut down Got a window unit ac donated last month and finally got everything ready to go. So far everything is good, I have lights on 8pm. to 8 am. temps at 76 - 78 day, 72 -74 night. Humidity is 45% - 55%. The lights are 1000 watt HPS air cooled. We got an exhaust fan, that can pull fresh filtered air from either outside or from my living area depending on temp/humidity outside. I have some plants that were supposed to go into flower in July that I had under florescent lights since July and managed to keep them short enough (hopefully) to finish them off. I think I am going to try cold air dump to try and keep the stretch down. The La cookies variety I got is a really short stretch anyways so it will be close. Also put a 4" x 4" screen over them to help. Got the room sealed and ready till I get the finishing piece, a Co2 tank. Until then they get their air from either outside or the house. Exhaust fan vents room during lights out.
    Am I forgetting anything?

    Blessings

    Sounds like you are going to be having fun.
    What are the plants going to be growing in? What type of hydroponic system?

    Ending prohibition is taking too long. People need to be allowed to make medicine from all the herbs so they can live.

    I have a flood and drain set up that i now run as a top drip in clay balls. Originally it took 60 gallons of nute solution so to cut cost I reduced nute solution to 20 gals. and just pump up and through the top of buckets with some make shift halo type drip back to res. 2 hours on 1 hour off 2 hours on 1 hour off....and so on until 1 hour before lights out.

    @tvbfe sounds like a good simple system, and I'm sure it's much easier to prep and shlep 20 gallons for each solution change than 60 lol!

    Off and running, they just woke up from their first night of sleep and they are doing well. The ac unit handled the cold air dump well ( seems like it should be called cold air flood lol) from 77 deg. f. night temp to 70 deg. f. the last hour of night through the first hour of daylight, then back to 78 deg. humidity 53% ph 5.9 up .1 from 5.8 yesterday reservoir temp 69 deg. f. The Co2 ppm is 711. So happy to have this up and running again, been smoking roaches and some old seedy weed I had stashed, its probably 1 year old. When I first started getting the room back in operating condition I had a hard time getting motivated but now that I have it going I feel rejuvenated. Grow baby grow.

    Changed out nute solution last night, think I over did the k so I knocked it back a bit, raised the light also, I have got about 6 more inches left of height left, might have to reduce light to 600 watts.

    If ceiling height is becoming an issue, You can always tuck the branches under the screen.
